This is a the second 4 week programme for 5k distances.

 

Dear club members, 

This is a very simple 4 week programme for 5K distances you can do yourself while no club training sessions

This page is dedicated to the members of Lancaster & Morecambe AC who are self employed

Message from the chairman 

We hope all our members are well and managing to keep fit. This message is being written on Sunday and it's difficult to assimilate all that's happened in less than a week.

 All Members and Parents

England Athletics have issued a statement today on the Coronavirus, advising clubs to avoid all face to face activity, including training sessions and competitions until at least the end of April. (See statement below).

 

The club has learned of the sad death of of one of our members, Graham Lawton, at the age of 43.

Five years ago I said I don’t do running, I don’t get it, it’s daft.

Tuesday 24th March 8.00 PM - Club house

 

It was another great day at Sportshall in Preston this Sunday with our Lancaster and Morecambe Athletics Club athletes demonstrating their all-round abilities in indoor running, jumping and throwing.

 

5 ladies turned out for Mid Lancs Cross Country at Burnley on Saturday 11th Jan.

 

Lancaster & Morecambe AC Junior cross country runners, headed off to Witton Park, Blackburn for the County XC Championships, we knew the course would be muddy it normally is, but we had hoped the rain would hold off, which it did for the most part with the odd very cold shower to remind us it was January, and the wind made its presence known during the races, but despite this we came away with 3 County Champions. 

 

A pleasant, slightly cloudy morning greeted runners at the Lancaster & Morecambe Athletic Club’s annual Festive 4k Fun Run on the morning of Friday December 27th.  This was a special year, celebrating the 20th anniversary of the run.  Over 350 entrants turned up to run off excess Christmas pudding and turkey! – nearly as many as last year.. 

 

It is with great sadness that the club announces the death of its oldest member, Arnold Bibby.

 

Didcot parkrun in Oxfordshire was our warm-up for our “proper” race on Sunday 24th November.  Muddy grass 3 laps round a field – I could maybe one day get myself a pair of trail shoes and join the LMAC Senior ladies XC team…..I did say maybe!  Yes, I did actually enjoy the parkrun.  Moving on…………

 

The Lancaster and Morecambe Athletics Club’s team of indoor sportshall athletes has achieved great results in both of the first two Lancashire County Sportshall League competitions of the season. 

 

The senior men's cross country team were at Liverpool on 23rd November. The team had another fantastic turn out  with 15 runners arriving at a very muddy Sefton Park.

 

Lancaster & Morecambe AC juniors headed off to Liverpool this weekend to compete in the Cross Challenge cross country, a national fixture and also the European cross country trials.

 

We are pleased to announce the Lancaster & Morecambe Athletic club 2020 senior championship races

 

Our next inductee into the Lancaster & Morecambe AC Hall of Fame is the fantastic speed merchant Averil McClelland.

 

Hyndburn was the destination for the 2nd Mid Lancs cross country fixture it proved as always to be a challenging course, made even more difficult with the very muddy and cold conditions. Lancaster & Morecambe AC juniors rose to the challenge however and put in some very strong and determined performances.

 

So the seniors road running championship 2019 came to an end and we had 22 club runners turning out – one of best attended races of year (along with 22 at Garstang earlier in year).

 

Hydburn Cross Country saw a record number of 18 senior men representing LMAC in a strong field of 274 finishers.

 

Well on Sunday, 3rd of November, I experienced my first trail marathon with IGUN, ( it's grim up north). 

 

The England Athletics Hall of Fame honours those people who have made outstanding contributions to athletics and running.

 

The first fixture of the Mid Lancs cross-country league was at Ulverston on 28th September

Fancy a free marathon place.....

 

I wrote an article last year on my account of completing the Lakeland 50 and thought I ought to follow this up with a brief account of my successful completion of the Lakeland 100 this year.

 

Several months ago Lancaster and Morecambe AC member David Wilkinson decided to take up a 60th birthday challenge by entering the St Anton Arlberg marathon in the Austrian Alps.

LMAC had 6 veterans running at the British Masters 5k road championships in Horwich.

Father and Daughter team David Wilkinson (Lancaster and Morecambe AC), Nadine Parsons (Garstang RC) travelled to Cyprus to compete in the 21st Paphos Marathon on Sunday 17th March 2019.

On Saturday 26th January 32 of the seniors from LMAC got together for a meal at Molly’s in Lancaster which also included a “Chairpersons Award presentation” for the road runner of the year.

As the Sportshall season draws to a close for 2018-19,

Lancaster & Morecambe AC’s road runners have got off to a flying start in 2019, with 28 of the club’s runners taking part at the Garstang 10km last weekend,

Lancaster & Morecambe Athletes headed off to the Lancashire Country Cross Country Championships this weekend, it was a dry day and the ground was firm ensuring a fast course.
